#20 in the “Divine Feminine” series.  In October and November we’ll be featuring quotes about, for and by women.  Inspired by the Awakin.org call with Elle Lunaauthor The Crossroads of Should and Must. See also Aphrodite Emerges on Medium.com and “#the100dayproject” on Instagram.   This was written by Jacqueline Kennedy-Onassis in 1939 when she was 10-years old and her name was Jaqueline Lee Bouvier.

This Gem is dedicated in loving memory today to President John F. Kennedy (May 29, 1917 – November 22, 1963) and to his widow, Jacqueline Kennedy-Onassis with great respect and sorrow.  I was only 3-years old but I remember this day.   I remember being in the middle of the living room and many adults were standing around the television and crying. I have vivid memories of seeing pant legs and skirts from knee-height, milling around, holding each other for support.  To see so many adults crying was a terrible shock.  It wasn’t until I was older that I truly understood how much we lost that day, “…the end of Camelot.”
